Beautiful Decay Art

In rust, corrosion, and decay, we see impermanence. Could the effect of time and the elements on metal, paint, and glass be mirrors for ourselves?  As a society, we value youth. We shun aging. Yet, when you really think this through, isn’t it amazing that we’ve been granted another day to explore? We got to be young, and here we are, still able to learn and experience. Our bodies and minds are sacred and deserve our kindness and attention. Let’s embrace our aging, whether it is an old car, bad knees, or forgetting details. In all of it, your attention is what determines if something is beautiful.

 

“The world is afflicted by death and decay. But the wise do not grieve, having realized the nature of the world.” 

-The Buddha
